Making a Difference
Alief Community Garden
Once in awhile we get an opportunity to contribute to a project with so much momentum that it is amazing how quickly things get accomplished. Our contribution to the Alief Community Garden was one of these opportunities. Over the summer the CDRC worked with the Alief Super Neighborhood Council, Urban Harvest, and the International Management District to develop a site plan for a new community garden. On September 17, 2011 hundreds of people came to the site including members of the University of Houston’s AIAS Freedom by Design group to build the garden beds. The garden is located near the intersection of Beechnut and Dairy Ashford.
